Since I last blogged I have also "discovered" Etsy! What an amazing site. It's the type of site I have been hoping existed. I love vintage, home made and anything unique. I wish I was a creative person so I could put my wares on to sell. The only creative thing I do is cross stitching. I have been doing this on and off for around 15 years. The only problem is it takes me so long to finish a piece it would never be worth my while selling them. I like to do them for family and friends to give as gifts. Here is the first thing I bought off the site; it's a scottie dog brooch! How adorable. Look at the cute packaging. I was dead chuffed with it.
This weekend I would like to buy a food processor. Alot of recipes require the use of a food processor so I thought it was time I got my ass into gear and got one. If anyone has any suggestions on what one to buy, please can you let me know. I know the cheapest one will probably not be the best but then again my pocket wouldn't love me if it will cost over £100. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks peeps. x

I try not to buy biscuits as making them is so easy. This week I made raisin and pecan cookies. G was eating them before I had even finished baking the 2nd batch. These were very quick to make and very worth it.
I have always wondered what a cobbler was like (I love crumbles and knew they were similar). I made this simple blueberry cobbler. Unfortunately I used a dish that was too big so my topping looks kinda sparse. Next time I will double the topping. It was great but doesn't match a mighty crumble.
